NFC: 4H clubs
With the invaluable help of Mr. Flowers and a few more folks I was able
to track down the 4H guy who heads up their enviromental studies program.
They do not on the national level have an organized Aquatic Sciences
program but many County chapters do. Anyway the long and the short of it
is he loved the NFC we are working on some partnering stuff on the
national level and he invited me to write a short Piece on the NFC for
their monthly email letter that goes out to all 3500 county offices plus
so here it is ignore the typos and thanks agian guys for all your help
and good ideas. !! This goes out on Friday to all the 4h'rs .....
